Event description
Join Buddhist monk Bhante Akāliko in a discussion about queer, trans and intersex identities in Buddhism.

About this Event

Empty Selves

Saturday 22 February

3–4.30pm

Free, registration essential

Inspired by themes of fragmentation and transformation in Misfit: collage and queer practice, Buddist monk Bhante Akāliko will lead a discussion about queer, trans and intersex identities in Buddhism.

Discover how specific Buddhist meditation techniques use methods similar to collage by dividing the body into parts and processes in order to investigate the nature of self. These meditations help shift our familiar perspective and create new understandings about our identity.

The talk will be followed by a guided meditation with Rainbodhi LGBTQIA+ Buddhist Community.
